We met at school back in first grade. Over the years the four of us became best friends.We are now in 5th grade and still good friends. Our teachers noticed we were doing work at a faster pace so they asked us if we were interested in the Think Quest enrichment program. After we decided on our topic we divided the research into four groups. Then we began our research and used our different strengths (abilities) to make the writing our own.
After the research was finished we each learned how to use different programs such as Dreamweaver, Hot Potatoes etc. to make this site. Dreamweaver was used to make our web pages. McKenzie acted as our Fireworks specialist to make the buttons. Gia acted as our Flash expert, she made the banner on the home page and the brain on the biography page. Kayla did most of the Hot Potatoes work to make the quizzes and she drew the border that we scanned in. Jennie did most of the linking and glossary work. For the photos on the biography pages we all learned to use a digital camera and how to crop the photos. We all designed the site. The rest we typed or scanned. Every week we met during school. Once a week we met after school on Thursday. As the deadline approached we met twice a week after school, Tuesday and Thursday and we gave up some weekends and vacations to come in and work.We met at school in our classroom and in the computer lab.
Our coach, Mrs. Slack, played an important role in the creation of this site. She guided us through the research process, helping us find appropriate resources and suggested possible professionals to interview for additional information. Our second coach, Mrs. Mead, acted as our technology support person. She introduced us to Inspiration 7 where we mapped out the blueprint of our site. From there she guided us through the other programs used to make the site.

After most of our research was finished we asked our school psychologist to look over our information. After reviewing the information he asked us if we would present our information at an upcoming parent meeting on ADHD. We made a story board displaying our documents. After the two doctors had presented their information we then gave a fifteen minute talk on our information.
